I have mentioned several times that there is a big classification of anxiety disorders.
User :   ok then
Doctor :   And I have asked you have you been classified as what your exact disorder was
Doctor :   As I feel yours is A Obsessive Compulsive disorder.
User :   its just common anxiety notn a physical problem
User :   not at all she said its a health anxiety
Doctor :   Anxiety or any of these are not physical but only psychiatric.
Doctor :   If it is simple anxiety the I would say there is nothing to worry.
User :   ok doctor sorry to been rude
Doctor :   No problem
The doctor that you went , was she an MD in Psychiatry.
User :   doctor i think you r making anxious by asking these question
Doctor :   It is a valid question because she has to specify on the prescription that it is Generalised Anxiety Disorder, if it is simple anxiety.
Doctor :   Did she write that ?
Doctor :   "Generalised Anxiety Disorder"
User :   simple anxiety
Doctor :   Then I would say that you have to consult an MD for that .
User :   thabks for your support in answering bye
Doctor :   She is not an MD , and an MD would not be unspecific in Psychiatry.
Doctor :   Thank you for ocnsulting me.
Doctor :   Take care.
Doctor :   bye for now.
